3fourths (8811) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 6, 2005
Draught at the brewery
Slightly murky yellow, pale in color. Sweet corn and rice nose, more like a Bud or Molson product. Light and wet, flavorless up front, then sour and lager-esque and dry on the back of the tongue. Finish is grainy and corny. Too sour.

Malty golden pilsner. Almost as good as the ubiquitous urquel but not quite. I’ll have it again

Ohmbrewer (1) - Washington, USA - APR 24, 2005 does not count
Noticable malt aroma. Appearance is golden in color, high carbonation. Mouthfeel is lush and smooth, oily, dry finish. Strong malt flavor, floral, citrus sweet, with a bitter/spicy finish.

HoppedHead (106) - seattle, Washington, USA - APR 7, 2005
Pours hazy golden, nose of malts and noble hops, bigger bodied than most pils, gives it a "nw" twist on the classic, big malt flavor balanced w/ herbal, almost spicey hop flavor,delicious!

DrunkAsASkunk (847) - Lynnwood, Washington, USA - MAR 30, 2005
This beer pours a straw yellow color with a carbonation tornado in the center of the glass, a massive white head that lasted a while and a nice thick degree of lacing. The aroma is weak with lemon and citrusy malt dominating..but overall it was pretty light. The flavor is medium bodied which is an improvement in itself for a pilsner. Malts, lemon and citrus dominate with a cardboard-like dryness toward the finish. High carbonation level, some breadyness and metalicness as it warmed. I really can’t complain though...this is about as good a pilsner as Ive had in a long time.

DarkElf (3050) - La Jolla, California, USA - FEB 19, 2005
(12 oz bottle: Bottleworks in Seattle, WA) Not a bad pilsner, fairly well balanced and moderately flavorful, but I’m not crazy about the prominent status of the moderately sour lemon citrus flavor in the beer. It’s not overwhelming or unpleasant, but it overshadows the very light maltiness, and even the mildly bitter hops. The nose is mostly lemon as well. The body is pretty light, but not watery. Fairly pale yellow in color and hazy, with plenty of small, dark particles suspended in the beer. White head pours to about an inch in height and shows excellent retention, maintaining a thinning layer for the duration of the session. A full coating of fine, delicate lacing is left on the glass. Not something I’d seek out.

Oakes (13966) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 30, 2005
Draught, at the brewpub

Hazy straw colour. Appetizing bready malt taste with a pungent, fruity hop character (thought I got some Simcoe, but apparently not). Crisp, grassy bitterness with a hint of lemon and some honeyed, biscuity pale malts. Sweetish finish. This is the PNW’s version of "approachable starter beer".

5000 (6599) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JAN 21, 2005
Bottle pours a very pale golden, somewhat cloudy, large white rocky head, web like lacing, with soft carbonation.   Malty nose, somewhat buttery and sweet.   Slightly floral as well, and quite sweet about that too.   Somewhat thick mouthfeel is what I first notice, almost wheaty.   Nice sweet maltiness, with a floral/spicy flair.   Yeah, definitely a bit heavier than your normal pilsner, which I really like.   Good body, somewhat thick mouthfeel.   Finishes with a bit more hops, albeit very soft.   Also malty.   Nice!   Probably one of the better local Pilseners I have had.

BückDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - DEC 31, 2004
Yellow gold color, nice head & spotty lacing. Nose of crisp hops & citrus toasty malts. Taste is balanced & full bodied. Very nice pilsner. Semi-sweet finish.

Sham (1845) - Seattle, Washington, USA - DEC 24, 2004
Light yellow gold with a creamy head with some stringly lace. Grassy and earthy with a bit of btter hops. Some lemon, almost a cleaner smell. The malts are few and far between. Bitter and acidic. It makes my tongue tingle a bit. Large amount of bitter citrus is what it is. The grassiness is there, but almost buried. Sharp and acidic bite to the palate.
